We are a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers, and have been helping the needy families of Oakville since 1987. We currently serve 400 to 450 families (approx. 1,500 to 1,600 people) per month from our location at 1240 Speers Road, between 3rd Line and 4th Line.
We are open to clients Mondays 10am to 2pm and Thursdays 3pm to 6:45pm. All clients are initially interviewed to ensure they qualify; and regularly thereafter to determine that their circumstances have not changed.
We are open for deliveries and donations only at various times during the work week. Please call to make sure someone will be here to receive you. 905-847-3988
The bulk of our food comes from Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas food drives, and on-going donations from churches, schools, businesses and supermarket donation bins. Please click on the ‘Host A Food Drive’ tab to help out in this way.
Monetary donations are vital to our existence. We need them to buy non donated perishable food such as chicken, ground beef, fish, cheese and fresh and frozen vegetables and fruit. A portion of the money pays for the Supermarket gift cards we provide to families at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Being volunteer run, we pay no salaries. Tax receipts are issued for all monetary donations where appropriate. Charity Registration No. 13173 6662 RR0001
“I have recently become a user of the food bank. I was treated with respect, kindness and comfort as the staff realized I was so very uncomfortable being in a position of such need. I will always appreciate what this group of volunteers did for me and hopefully one day I will be able to repay their kindness.”
